For this website project I decided to research about skin cancer.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is vital to our species; it protects us from many different injuries from chemicals to cuts. Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the USA, everyday, many people, lie in the sun “tanning”; when people tan, the risk of skin cancer doubles. Harmful sunlight rays and ultraviolet light are a couple of the main causes of this deadly disease. Skin cancer can be easy to prevent. but treatments are sometime expensive and occasionally do not work too well if the cancer is not found early enough.
